Eleventy Integration

The official plugin for integrating JamComments into your Eleventy site.


In order to use this plugin, you'll need to do the following:


Run npm install @jam-comments/eleventy.


In your .eleventy.js file, require the plugin and initialize it with your site's domain and API key.

const jamComments = require('@jam-comments/eleventy');

module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {
  eleventyConfig.addPlugin(jamComments, {
    domain: process.env.JAM_COMMENTS_DOMAIN,
    apiKey: process.env.JAM_COMMENTS_API_KEY,
    environment: process.env.NODE_ENV, // Optional.
    tz: "America/Chicago" // Optional.

Displaying Comments

Embed the jamcomments Nunjucks shortcode in the template that renders individual posts or pages. Note that explicitly passing the path.url is optional. If it's not provided, it'll use the current path as indicated by Eleventy on build.

<h1>My Page Title</h1>

<p>Here's some page content.</p>

<!-- Form and comments will render here! -->
{% jamcomments path.url %}
